Price matching on the other outlets should follow.

What's in a name?

I'm busy writing the sequel, or non-sequel, to Stan. It's set 25 years after Stan ended. What I need is names - character names. I could do the random-name-generator thing, or the favourite-rock-artist-name-combo thing, but I thought I might try something different.

Does anyone want their name used for a character? Please submit as replies to this post. There are, you will understand, some rules:
  1. It must be your name, not some poor soul that you want to pick on, or embarrass;
  2. So, following on from that;
  3. It must be publishable;
  4. No Bart Simpson phone-gag names;
  5. I cannot guarantee that the character will match yours in any way, or indeed be nice - given that there aren't very many nice people in my books, it's very likely that they will not be nice - at all.
  6. There is no reward, financial or otherwise, in having you name included, other than be able to point at it in the book and say "that's me" - if you dare own up to it.
  7. The author's word (mine) is final.

Stan free for a week ...

From Monday 12 July, for one week, I'm selling Stan for nowt. That's nothing, free, zero pounds.

It's set up on Kobo, so Amazon and others should follow, using price-matching principles.

After that, the price will be revised to £1.99, or equivalent.

FOG is Alive!

Well, after many months of writing, editing, more editing and yet more editing, FOG is ready for the world.

It's different to Stan, but is a tale that had to be told.

Today, 10 July 2014, it's available on Amazon and Kobo. More will follow later.

Have a gander - you can download free samples from most of the merchants.

Enjoy (hopefully)
